    PostScript

    PostScript is a sophisticated page description language developed by Adobe which is used to control the output of documents to some higher quality printers, and in some cases for screen displays.

    You may occassionally encounter files containing PostScript data, typically:
    • PostScript files, which typically contain a stream of PostScript data (and may be able to be sent directly to a PostScript compatible printer).

    • Encapsulated PostScript files, which contain PostScript commands describing a graphic or section of a page, and in some cases a preview image.
